Meet Riley Johnson. CEO of Captive Films.

Hot. Rich. Privileged. Seriously Single.

There could never be a reality show about my life. It’d just be work and sex. Lots and lots of sex. No breakups. No fights with friends. Zero drama. Drama’s for the movies. Not for me.

I’m Riley Johnson. I’ve got it all. Brand new jet. Exotic cars. Luxury penthouse. Black card. A different aspiring actress (or two) in my bed every night. I run Captive Films. Where we leave you begging for more. Or maybe that’s just me.

My life is perfect. . . Until she walks back into it.

 The Hollywood Love series follows the lives and loves of those who work at Captive Films:  Hot, successful, playboy Riley Johnson, whose business success far exceeds his success in love. Movie star, Keatyn Douglas, whose epic love story has spawned a series of books and movies. And Dawson Johnson, who joins Captive with a tragic past. Expect lots of drama, sex, and tabloid-worthy events.

Riley Johnson has made a name for himself in the motion picture business. Along with his two best friends, Keatyn Douglas and Dallas McMahon, they’ve built a company that anyone would be proud of. Although Keatyn and Dallas have found their true loves, Riley has been busy playing the field and giving up on love since Ariella broke his heart at their high school graduation. When Ariela enters their lives again, Riley isn’t sure he can forgive her and this is their continuing story.

“…I want to share a quote with you that my dad shared with me when I got my first acting role. Eleanor Roosevelt once said that ‘The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.’ At the time, I thought it related to my achieving my dream of being an actor, but now I understand it so much better. You are my future, Katie, because you are the beauty of my dreams.”

Sex is the continuation of The Keatyn Chronicles. We have weddings, babies and more relationship drama. I loved Keatyn and Aiden’s wedding and honeymoon. Everything about these two makes me smile. Their love has just grown from what they had in high school and he is her Moon Boy. Dallas is another of my happy places I like to visit in this story. He’s just as in love with RiAnne as he was when they first got together. Same with Knox. He’s such a go-getter! I couldn’t believe where fate takes him. Dawson and Vanessa…things can’t always be smooth but still adore these two together. That brings me to Riley. That man is not doing much to get off my naughty list. I just can’t relate to him at all. You say you still have feelings but are afraid of being hurt. You rush into this new predicament. Sigh. He makes my heart hurt. Of all of the characters from the Keatyn books, I just don’t understand how he could be so indecisive besides his convoluted reasoning. I’m ready for Ariela to move on.

I would also recommend you check out Jillian’s other books. That Boy is a great read with hot football players. Vegas Love and the Love series has three brothers who will get your motor running. I always wind up smiling while reading and maybe throwing my kindle in angst.robin

The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde ~Blog Tour w/ Review

 

twbbanner

 

TWB Amazon

I’d dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

Emery has moved back home after she discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her. This isn’t how she pictured her life going. When she runs into her ex-boyfriend’s brother at his family’s wedding, sparks kind of fly. Especially when he doesn’t realize who she is. Maybe a hookup is what they both need even though that’s not something Emery does. Jensen has other plans though and somehow things go awry when the two can’t seem to stay away from each other.

“But none of those relationships or pseudo relationships had ever had a guy who wanted to talk about what he wanted to do to me. To count the ways that he wanted to f*ck me and then follow through.

Jensen Wright wanted to f*ck me.

He wanted to use my mouth and body all night.

And I was perfectly fine with letting him.”

Holy sexual tension, Batman! After reading this story all I can say is where is my Wright brother? Emery has sworn off the Wright family after a high school romance with Landon but when she catches Jensen’s eye, will she be able to resist the Wright moves? Jeez Emery has already caught two brothers’ eyes. Is that fair? Think of the starving um…ok. Going to PG this down. This book was crazy hot. I pretty much loved the siblings and their relationship. I love that we have two more brothers that we are going to get stories about. This story was fun to read and I could hardly put it down.

I’ve been a fan of K.A. Linde’s writing for a long time. If you haven’t picked up one of her books and like a steamy romance with a side of angst thrown in there, you’ll love this one. I am counting down to get the details on another Wright brother!

Barrett

The name’s Barrett Callahan. Yeah, that Barrett Callahan—the one the press dubbed “Bare” after those naked sexting pictures surfaced. At twenty-five, I was armed with an MBA from Harvard, an executive position at my father’s Fortune 500 company, a penthouse, and a different piece of delectable eye candy in my bed every weekend. I had a life most men dreamed of. But then my father decided to run for president, and my playboy lifestyle became a liability to his campaign that was built on family values. My “makeover” comes in the form of a fake fiancée who I don’t even get to choose–one who is an uptight, choirgirl acting priss but also sexy-as-hell.

Addison

My latest relationship had gone down in flames, and I was drowning in a sea of student loans when in true Godfather status, James Callahan made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Seven figures for seven months on the campaign trail pretending to be the adoring fiancée of his son, Barrett. As soon as he won the election, our engagement would be dissolved amicably for the press, I was free to ride off into the sunset a million dollars richer, and because of the NDA, no one would be the wiser. Sure, I’d never met the guy, but I’d been a theater nerd in high school. I could pull off any role from Lady Macbeth to Maria Von Trapp. But that was before I met my fake fiancé—the infuriating, self-absorbed, egotistical, drop-dead-sexy King of the Manwhores.

Playboy Barrett Callahan is a liability in his father’s presidential campaign. His naked pictures have shown up on the internet and he never stays with the same woman very long. When his father secures campaign worker Addison to play his fake fiancée, it’s like oil and water. These two don’t mix well. Addison isn’t going to let little “bear” (who actually names their penis?!) out to play during this agreement. Will his dad actually win this campaign or will Addison and Barrett end up throttling each other before the race is over?

“Holy. Shit.

Barrett Callahan was one hell of a kisser. His lips had the combustive ability to melt your thong right off while simultaneously sending a rushing geyser between your legs. But that wasn’t just his lips. It was the feel of his hard, muscled body pressing against mine, and the way his fingers tangled through the strands of my hair, slightly tugging on the ends. I loved a good hair pulling from time to time. Most of the guys I knew took a little while to work up to it. But not Barrett.”

What a cute romance with how they go from tolerating each other to the slow burn of attraction. This was a quick, fun read for me with quite a few parts that made me laugh out loud. Barrett comes across as the most egotistical, narcissistic prick when he and Addison’s meet for the first time. His first priority seems to be the next woman he gets to pound. Addison is rebounding from an asshole ex who cheated on her so her trust level is at about zero. What they can’t seem to fight even though they bicker constantly is the hint of attraction between them. Now this isn’t a panty scorcher. They aren’t burning up the sheets or anything. But it has some snarky conversation and Barrett starting to show his true character and redeeming qualities. Like I said…it’s a cute political storyline with romance hiding out and taking them by surprise.

I can’t believe this is my first Katie Ashley book! I think I’ve been under a rock. I’ve bought her books and after this one I need to make them a higher priority. Shame on me!

The Silver Swan by Amo Jones ~Release Blitz w/ Review & Excerpt

 

 

Title: The Silver Swan
Series: The Elite Kings Club #1
Author: Amo Jones
Genre: Romance
Release Date: March 7, 2017

 

Blurb

Riddle me this…
“I am neither dead, nor alive, and I’m not something little Madison can hide.
But you will be dead, by the time this is done…
the timer starts now, and the games have just begun…”

Madison Montgomery comes from money and power, but when someone close to her commits the ultimate crime, Madison must live with her tainted name for the rest of her life. When she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, the private school her father has swept her into in The Hamptons, she hopes for a fresh start. What she wasn’t hoping for was the pack of bad boys who run the school; ten, to be exact. When Madison gains the attention of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, a whole new world that she didn’t think existed is exposed to her. A whole world that starts and ends with The Elite Kings Club and these boys, are about to flip her world upside down. Secrets are overflowing and family lies are about to be exposed. Is there more to Madison Montgomery than even she knows?
About this book:
I need to admit something right now. The Silver Swan is f*cked. It might be the most insane story I’ve ever written with equally insane characters. Who knew? You know, when I started this book, it was supposed to be YA. I wanted to write a book that my sisters could read. A book that won’t have people look at my mum like “damn… what sort of messed up shit happened to your kid?”. The angst, the assholeness, the games, the f**kery, the WHAT THE F**KING F**K ARE YOU DOING???!!!…
I cannot even…. anyway, this is a warning (and the only one I’ll give you). It’s crazy. I don’t compare my work to my others, but this book is f**ked. It will most likely stomp all the f**k over people’s hard limits (and not give a sh*t while it’s doing it) and will make you second guess all the morals you thought you had.
This most definitely is not looking like a love story right now… more like a….. I don’t even….*shakes head* anyway, I apologise now. You asked for it……….

Madison is starting at a new exclusive school since her family has been embroiled in a family scandal. Being the new girl isn’t easy but she’s use to not having many friends. When an exclusive secret “club” of guys notice her, things start to get a little sketchy. Who are these guys and are they involved in? And what does it have to do with her?

“I turn to him. ‘Why are there so many secrets?’

He looks at me sideways, his hand running over his upper lip. ‘In this world secrets are weapons, kitty. It’s what stands between us and six feet underground.’

I chuckle lightly, clearing my throat while swiping my hair away from my face. ‘You say that like you live a different life.’

His head tilts. ‘Not everything is as it seems.’”

I’m weirded out right now. Whoa. What are the everloving secrets you all are keeping and why don’t you just tell her already! I loved the mysterious bad boys and Madison’s inability to stay away from them. This reminds me of one of my favorite YA series but so much darker and twisted. The more Madison finds out, the more she wants to know. The ending made me wonder how the heck did she not realize before how involved she is. It’s crazy! I can’t wait to find out more!

Ok…I’m just going to say it. If you are a fan of teenage angst but they act like they are in their mid 20’s…you will love this. I don’t know what it is about these mature young adult books. I love them! Give me a couple cocky guys and a mouthy girl and I’m a happy camper.

Excerpt
“Nate?” I whisper. “Maybe I took a wrong turn.”

Silence.

“Nate!” I yell down the phone. “This isn’t funny.”

“I’m not laughing, sis. Keep going, we can see your headlights.” What am I doing? I’m basically relying on the fact that Nate and I had bonded a little and that both our parents are together. I’m not sure those facts are worth my life. No, he wouldn’t. I’m just being paranoid. The only time, except for school, where I didn’t bring my fucking pistol either. I sag in defeat. My dad will not be impressed with my not carrying, and my mom will no doubt be screaming at me from the other side about how these are the reasons why she and my dad educated me so much on firearms. I’ve failed as a fucking daughter. I shuffle up in my seat.

“Nate, I don’t fucking see anything up here but ja—OMG!” I slam on the breaks, all four tires locking up in a skid. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. “Nate!” I yell into the phone.

Silence.

Slowly, I look up out the front windscreen, the thick dust from my tires interrupting the loose gravel still floating in the air and that’s when I see it again.

Ten men.

Ten dark hoodies covering their faces.

Ten—“Nate..” understanding sets in. Ten.

Slamming the gear into reverse, I’m just about to floor it backwards—to hell with anything or anyone behind me—when my driver’s window smashes into a million pieces, the tiny shards of glass falling onto my lap. I scream, my hands coming up to shield my face just as an arm slips inside and pops up the lock.

A deep menacing chuckle breathes over the back of my neck just as a leather gloved hand wraps around my mouth and pulls me out of the car. “Hello Madison. You don’t know us, but we know you. We want to play a game. Here’s what happens if you lose…”

Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.

But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.

Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.

Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…

Lucas has been branded as a “cheater” so he’s embraced it fully. He has a different girl for every day of the week. He’s also Avery’s worst nightmare. Avery has lost her job and finally landed an internship. What she didn’t realize is she’s working for Lucas “Satan” Thorn. How will she survive being near her sister’s cheating ex-fiancé? Or as she has tried to forget, her secret crush?

“‘Lucas, as much as I’d like to shove our history up your ass and light you on fire, I can’t, you know, because I wouldn’t survive prison, and they don’t have Starbucks there…But four years is a long time. I’ve changed.’ I sighed. ‘I mean, both of us have. I’m a mildly successful college graduate discovering what I want to do with my life, paying my own electricity bill and you’ – I pointed to him – ‘you…’

‘I what?’

He took a long sip of coffee. I didn’t wait for him to swallow.

‘You’re a lying, cheating whore.’ I said it sweetly, even batted my eyes at him. That made it better, right?”

Yeah…I loved it! So funny and awkward and sexy. Avery is just a foodie mess. You want forgiveness? Just offer her a pastry or Thai food. Lucas Thorn…I don’t know how anyone could resist this sex on a stick. I loved all of the sister wives jokes and how feisty Avery was trying to ignore her feelings for Satan. The entire story was just so entertaining and fun to read. So many of the misunderstandings by his crazy parents really cracked me up. Talk about “shipping” a couple! His parents are the ultimate shippers! I couldn’t put this book down except to burst out laughing or shuddering at something they did.

If you love funny and crazy stories, you’ll adore this quirky romance. Although it’s called “Cheater”, I kind of agree with Lucas. It’s not cheating if they know about each other. Don’t blame the player…

Excerpt

The office building loomed ahead of me. I squinted up at it, covering my face with part of my hand as the sun cast its glare against the glass.

“What are we looking at?” Lucas whispered in my ear.

I let out a little yelp and jumped away from him, and I would have run into a passing biker if Lucas hadn’t pulled me out of the way with his coffee-free hand.

“Must you be such a pain in the ass?”

“Must you try to kill me?” I fired back.

He rolled his eyes. “Let’s go.” He started walking, hauling me with him.

We weren’t walking in the direction of the office.

“Um, Thorn—”

“I will seriously shove this Starbucks up that skinny ass if you don’t stop talking and just listen for once in your life.”

I shut up and followed, but only because he’d said “Starbucks” and was very purposefully moving in the nearest outpost’s general direction. If I looked pathetic enough, would he buy me coffee?

That was what my life was coming to.

Pity coffee.

My shoulders slumped at the thought when we walked into the building. The smell of fresh baked goods hit me with full force, and my stomach growled loudly, saying to everyone, I’m a hungry bear and may eat my young. Out of the way, please!

I followed Lucas to the line, still tempted to speak, but I figured if he wanted noise from me, he’d say something like, “You may grace me with your voice now, Avery.”

Even though I wasn’t talking, every time I heard someone order pumpkin bread I sighed, loudly, so loudly that the barista eyed me cautiously. Chill, Starbucks, I’m not going to steal a piece of pumpkin bread.

My mouth watered.

I mean, I wasn’t that desperate.

But if I took two, maybe three, steps toward her, yelled “Fire!” and then screamed nonsense about a bee attacking me, the pumpkin bread she had in hand would probably fall to the ground, and it would be wasteful if I didn’t rescue it from the ants.

All creatures deserve food—but pumpkin bread was too good for ants, too rich, and they’d explode all over the floor from the richness and it would be my fault—for saving the barista’s life, right? From the bee?

I think I just confused myself.

“Why are you breathing so heavy?” Lucas asked from my right.

I snapped out of my pumpkin-bread daydream and shrugged. “Sorry, low on sleep.”

He gave a noncommittal nod and then it was his turn, greedy little bastard already had one coffee now he was getting two! “A venti macchiato and a large coffee with room for cream, two slices—”

I elbowed him hard in the ribs.

“Sorry, um, three slices of pumpkin bread, thanks.”

He handed the barista his card, while my greedy eyes locked on the pumpkin bread as the barista placed it into a bag and gave it to him.

With an exasperated sigh, he shoved the bag into my hands. “Just leave me one bite.”

“No promises.” I was already digging into the bag, my mouth watering as I followed him around the counter with a little pep in my step.

Lucas grabbed our drinks and motioned toward one of the tables. I sat, stuffed more pumpkin goodness into my mouth, and managed to chug some coffee almost all at once.

Lucas shook his head. “I always forget how seriously you take your pumpkin bread.”

I moaned and took another huge bite. “My theory is this.”

He leaned forward, a smile curving around his gorgeous mouth. “Alright, out with it.”

More pumpkin bread found its way into my mouth as I talked—I didn’t even care if I looked like a starved animal. “Pumpkin bread has the same addictive properties as cocaine.”

“That’s your theory? That it’s a drug?”

“Right.” I sighed and leaned back. “Except it doesn’t make you skinny, unfortunately.”

His smile widened, and he grabbed a small hunk of bread. “Want to know my theory?”

“Yes, that’s exactly what I was thinking—I hope Lucas tells me his theory so I can eat his portion of bread.”

Lucas scooted the bag toward me and whispered, “Merry Christmas.”

“Oh, pumpkin gods.” I moaned again.

His eyes darted to my mouth.

“What?” I wiped my lips. “Is something on my face?”

“No.” He looked away. “So my theory is this . . . pumpkin flavoring is a conspiracy by the government to see how many ways we can market a flavor and make money off it.”

“Boo.” I gave him a thumbs-down. “Thanks, grinch. Oh, and stop ruining holidays.”

He smirked. “You’ve known forever that Santa isn’t real. Still doesn’t stop you from leaving him cookies every Christmas Eve, then sneaking downstairs and eating them all by yourself.”

“One”—I held up a finger—“it’s genius because nobody will touch them for fear that I’ll get mad. Two”—I held up a second finger—“when everyone else is sad about the Christmas cookies being gone, I know I’ll have them all to myself. It’s like . . .” I sighed, “. . . a Christmas present. To myself.”

“Except for that one time.” He smirked.

“Cruel man.” I glared at him. “How dare you eat my cookies?”

He shrugged. “They were sweet.”

Was it hot? In this little Starbucks? By the window where the sun was searing me alive like I was under a magnifying glass?

I tugged at my sleeveless blouse.

“About Saturday . . .”

Uncomfortable conversation, here we come! I strapped in and waited for the inevitable. And then realized, to my dismay, that he’d just bought me coffee and food without letting me go to the office.

My eyes filling with tears, I shook my head a few times. “Lucas, I may give you crap, but I really need this job.”

He frowned, like he was confused.

“Don’t say another word.” I held out my hands. “I’ll do anything, Lucas—and I mean anything—to keep this job. I wasn’t kidding when I said my parents were chomping at the bit to get me to move home, and I don’t want to. It’s not just about me being defiant; they want me to take over the family business.”

Lucas burst out laughing and then sobered. “Oh, you’re serious.”

“I can’t sell chicken, Thorn.”

“I mean, to be fair, Avery, your parents own a very lucrative organic meats company. I’m sure they could offer you at least five figures.” His smile was way too smug, but I still had to be nice to him rather than throw him off a cliff, because he could fire me.

“I spent years burying all of the hurt and hate and fear. I found ways to deal with the ingrained expectation of violence. I did things I’m not proud of, and right now I feel like I need to atone for every single sin so I can have this gorgeous woman and deserve her.

I’m not sure how to do that. I’m still going to take her, though. As far as she’s willing to go.’”

I should be sleeping at 2:30 a.m. But instead I’ve stayed up with Lance Romance. I laughed. I cried. I wanted to drink. I can’t believe all of that was going on with Tash! Talk about a toxic and abusive relationship. This was probably the darkest of the Pucked series, but Lance’s story was so worth it. At so many points, I wanted to grab ahold of him and just give him a hug. Poppy…I’m so glad Poppy walked back into Lance’s life. She is the grounding influence he needs and I loved how she was a stable character and not one to run wild with assumptions. She also doesn’t come across as a weak female. Lance has finally found himself some true romance.

If you love funny, crazy friends and family and enjoy a sexy book, you really need to read the Pucked series. I’m in love with the entire gang and actually jump and down wanting to read Darren and Charlene’s story. Killing me! You…are…killing…me. LOL!robin

Excerpt

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man.

He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep.

I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?”

He doesn’t move.

Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look.

I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow.

Sadly, he’s still hot.

He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional.

I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass.

I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”

Melissa is just trying to move forward with her life while her psycho ex-husband is up for execution when a twist of fate has CJ rescuing her while jogging during bad weather. Somehow she becomes the focus of a stranger named Pierce’s obsession and things start getting intense in this suspenseful romance. Adding to the crazy abductions happening in the area, CJ and Melissa have a connection that’s not just involving pheromones. Can they figure out how to keep Melissa safe and who is behind the kidnappings?

“She said it had been a year since GI Dickhead’s death. It might be fun to take her in my bed before bringing her to join my princesses. She would live with the knowledge she’d given herself freely for the rest of her life.

In my head, I’d already f*cked her in every way imaginable. My pants were so tight, my c*ck ached to be free. Time to wrap this up.”

This was a great suspenseful romance. We have four different lives all mingled together…a couple sociopaths, a couple victims…all too soon their lives collide with a twist of fate. Dark books that give the whacko’s POV are some of my favorites. I really loved Pierce sometimes…his thought process, sense of entitlement and superiority complex. He made me laugh which made my husband side eye me. I couldn’t even discuss this book with him because he would get so worked up as to why I am reading it. It’s not like I’m going to start keeping people in our basement…I promise! CJ was a sweet, all-American hero. He is exactly what Melissa needed after having a disgusting sociopath as a husband for so many years. I loved how the story kept me guessing as to how Pierce would proceed next and what could CJ and his team needed to do to figure out what was happening. At the end, all of the clues came together and I wasn’t left wondering what about….

If you like dark and twisted stories, this one is definitely a good one to throw on your TBR pile. It kept me interested the entire way and switched POV so we got a look into the situation from all sorts of angles. I really enjoyed it.
